NOAO Nighttime Proposals Due for 2000B

The NOAO Proposal Team

Proposals for observing time for the 2000B observing semester (August 2000-January 2001) at Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory and Kitt Peak National Observatory, and for community access time at the Hobby-Eberly Telescope and the Multiple Mirror Telescope Observatory, are due in March 2000. A separate article appears elsewhere that discusses observing time options on Gemini North. (See accompanying articles in this section for information about capabilities available at the facilities available through this proposal process.) The deadline for Survey Proposals is Wednesday evening, 15 March 2000, Midnight MST. (Survey proposals are accepted only from those investigators who submitted survey letters of intent by January 31.) Regular or standard proposals are due Friday evening, 31 March 2000, Midnight MST.

Proposal materials and information are available on our Web page at http://www.noao.edu/noaoprop/ (see accompanying articles in this section for changes to the proposal form and other important proposal information). Proposal materials are no longer available by FTP. Investigators are requested to use the Web form to initiate all proposals.
